I am putting him back into a snaffle (i don't have a loose ring but I do have a d-ring) and I will be working him in that on flexing, moving away from pressure, neck reining, etc. all the simple/ starter training pretty much. I don't think I will get a hack because those seem to be more for finished horses who don't need a bit as much. My horse needs a bit for the control. Im really thinking between the dogbone and the low port curb. I might be able to get both and just see what works better.
Bubb13, could you post a pic of the dogbone type that you are suggesting? One with jr. Cowhorse shanks? That way I have more of an idea of what you are talking about with it
